This Week’s Ink: August 17, 2013

I wanted to ink up all my new pens but had to show some restraint. I had inked the Omas 360 with the Omas Turquoise ink that came with the pen. I didn’t like the ink at all so flushed out the pen and put it aside.

I decided to ink the Marine Green Balance and the Sheaffer PFM I. I picked the Edison Menlo to have a modern pen in the mix. Two pens already had ink and I kept them in the mix. The Sheaffer Junior is a great writer and I can’t bring myself to leave it home. The Esterbrook J has my Esterbrook nib of the week.

The Pens

Pens inked for the week ahead

Sheaffer Balance Oversize (stub) – Montblanc Racing Green // Sheaffer PFM I (fine) – Montblanc Bordeaux // Edison Menlo Pump Filler (extra fine) – Montblanc Toffee Brown // Esterbrook J (#2314F) – Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun // Sheaffer Balance Junior (fine stub) – Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun // Sheaffer Triumph Sentinel (fine) – Montblanc Racing Green

I still have the test ink in the pens that had nib work done in DC but I’ll probably flush them out after playing with the nibs a bit more.
